Venezuelan troops reportedly barricaded a border bridge shared with Colombia on Wednesday, following plans to collect opposition- and US-backed humanitarian aid in nearby Cucuta due for delivery into Venezuela

A tanker truck and a shipping container could be seen blocking the border-crossing between Colombia and Venezuela, in footage filmed from near the Colombian border town of Cucuta on Wednesday.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s political rival Juan Guiado has promised to deliver aid into the country. He has called the incident a "test" for the military, who face the option of disobeying Maduro’s orders to block the supplies.

Maduro has vowed to continue blocking assistance from entering the country.
